I would have loved to take my class out to the pumpkin patch but since this wasn’t something I was able to do, I decided to bring the pumpkin patch to the children instead…
I keep this large sheet of cardboard for making different scenes. I just paint over it when I want to create something new. Last time I used it for our Outdoor Cafe. To go with the pumpkin patch, I added a few pumpkins and gourds and a small bale of hay….
The children also “picked” a pumpkin from the patch to take home. Our take-home pumpkins were really foam pumpkin shapes on a stick (I bought packages of foam pumpkin shapes from the Dollar Store)….
Some of our students thought it would be fun to have a pumpkin puppet show with their foam pumpkins…
It happened to rain on our pumpkin patch today as well – so we didn’t get to explore our pumpkin patch for very long but with the rain, it seemed almost like a day at a real pumpkin patch!
